I am Lecturer in Marine and Offshore Engineering, and a member of Liverpool Logistics, Offshore and Marine (LOOM) research centre. My expertise is in the field of fluid-structure interaction using experimental and numerical (CFD) simulations. It is my mission to contribute to and promote CO2 emission reduction in the ocean environment. To this end, I am involved in several research projects in drag reduction technologies for merchant vessels and renewable energy technologies.
In my current role, I deliver Offshore Engineering module at the postgraduate level, Ship Construction and Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture to undergraduates. In addition to my teaching duties, I am a co-investigator in European Interreg project ArcWind, which is investigating the development of floating offshore wind turbines for France, Portugal and the UK. Currently, I am conducting two research projects which are pursuing to diminish merchant vessels' water resistance trough reducing skin friction. I am also experienced in upstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry which provides me with a firm understanding of offshore and marine industries.
Currently, I am looking for motivated candidates to undertake PhD studies in:
• Interaction between Offshore wind turbines and Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV)
• Dynamics of floating structures
• Hydrodynamics of floating structures
• Drag reduction through alteration of boundary layer
A full scholarship is available for home and EU students, and partial funding for exceptional overseas candidates.
